Subject: RE: lyrics that work with different melodies
For literary types: pretty much all of Emily Dickinson's poetry can be sung to "The Yellow Rose of Texas" or "The Ballad of Gilligan's Isle." Trouble is, you do it once and you've ruined the poems forever. But a lot of them sound really good to "Amazing Grace."
